Maniax - Axe Throwing

Maniax - Axe Throwing

Travel Location: Maniax - Axe Throwing

Address: 01/75 Mary St, St Peters NSW 2044

What I liked best about this place:

What don't I like about Axe throwing? Just as the name describes you and your friends throw the axes at a wall with a target.

There are points allocations depending how close to the bulls eye you are. The points range from 1, 3, 5 and 7 (last resort point).

Upon entry and payment, you are asked to sign a waiver on the iPads provided.  As a group we paid $50.00 per person (price is subject to change).

Then the organisers draw up a knock our tournament and off you go. Don’t worry an instructor is with you the entire time.

Two people at a time throw the axes and take in turns accumulating points.

Someone keeps score manually on the computer.

The person with most points goes on to the next round.

I attended this for a work team bonding session, it was so much fun and especially exciting when you hit the bulls eye.

This is a great place to go with friends, groups, parties or a family night out (+18 ONLY).

What I liked best about this place: On a Sunday morning this place gets very busy. They were so busy they forget my friends coffee. But we just ended up cancelling it.

We had another agenda to coming here today and that was to buy the coffee beans. Were you aware you can buy the beans from The Grounds to make at home? My friend suggested this for my brother in laws Xmas Gift. What a fabulous idea!

Ask any staff member about the coffee beans and they will tell you what they have available. Usually the Original blend is available. This is what they sell normally in store. And they also have a seasonal blend changes periodically. They offer whole beans or to grind them for you.

They come in 250g or 1kg quantities.

Original Blend 250g - $16
Seasonal Blend 200g - $13

What was ordered:
Deconstructed Iced Chocolate - $7.50

The ice cubes in the glass where made out of chocolate and the shot glass had melted chocolate.
My friend really likes the shot glass, so I found a similar set online and will be gifting to her as a Christmas gift.

Have you even been to a place and liked the cutlery, the setting or the tableware? Do you like the grounds coffee? Would you buy this item?

Cake, Bake & Sweet Show 2018

Cake, Bake & Sweet Show

Miscellaneous Review:  Cake, Bake & Sweet Show

Address: ICC Sydney, Darling Harbour

What I liked best about this event:

This is an annual event held in Sydney and other cities in Australia. The event runs over 3 days. People from the community and businesses can open accessible exhibits and stalls. Even famous chefs come to host presentations. These are a great chance to get close and personal with your favourite celebrity chefs.

My friend Cass and I ventured to this event on the Sunday 25 November 2018.

My first time at this event was 4 years ago. I always manage to have the best of luck running into the celebrities. Last time I managed to get a quick snap with Adriano Zumbo.

This year I was lucky to run into the beautiful Katherine Sabbath. She was very lovely and happy for us to have a photo taken together. If you even read this Katherine, I really appreciated it.

We walked through the "Art of Cake" exhibit. This showed us some high quality decorated cakes!

We had time to catch a show on the main stage, hosted by Anna Polyviou. She had the entire crowd pumping with excitement. 

We saw a lady at the Liddell demonstration stage, telling us about her lovely Christmas cake. She even let us try some and it was delicious.

We even got to see a bold performance from the Knafeh guts in their shipping container. My friend shared her Grandmothers Knafeh once and told me about these guys, so I always wanted to try. If you ever see these guys shipping container in your Westfield car park, I recommend you try it. As they quoted it taste "like a warm Creme Brulee".

If you missed the event this year, try to go next year. You don't know who will pop up or what you will learn.

Feel free to comment, if you attended or attended in the past? What did you see? What did you like? What did you learn? What did you enjoy about the show? Did you buy any goodies?
